I Rumble at Joe Paparazzi. 10pm—3.30am. £3 (£1 student). The only problem with Rumble is that it's so dark. so big and so popular that if you're hoping to see friends there you really have to arrange it well in advance. Personally. I wish they wouldn‘t inflict full half-hours of bleep~bleep-twiddle on us. but those cavernous green shapes the lasers throw up keep boredom at bay during them. See you on the stairs at half-past one.

1. What’s Goin’ On: Marvin Gaye

4. If There’s 3 Hell Belovi, We’re All Gonna Go: Curtis Mayiield (Brother Curtis has never been a man for mincing words. If Cliff Richard had cred, he’d make a record like this— unfortunately. . .)
